While this may seem very fundamental, how does one bleed a hydraulic cylinder when the rod end port has a welded tube that leads down to its flare connection at the head end. This cylinder lies horizontal when retracted and is tilted rod end up when extended. It always seems to trap some air. I am bleeding by simply loosening the fitting at the end that I am stroking it to to let the air/oil out.
